LANSING — Tonight, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer delivered her first State of the State address, outlining her vision for the state and calling for bipartisan collaboration to address the issues facing Michigan’s working families. In response, state Rep. Vanessa Guerra (D-Saginaw) issued the following statement:

“After eight years of cherry-picked information, exaggerated results and excuse after excuse, I was thrilled to hear Gov. Whitmer lay out a real plan to get things done for Michigan families by working with people on both sides of the aisle to solve problems. Too many families throughout our state feel state government has forgotten them over the last decade, and I cannot wait to partner with Gov. Whitmer at the start of this new era to help support and uplift all Michigan families.”
